Excerpt from A Narrative History of the Town of Cohasset, MassachusettsThe Committee were authorized to fill vacancies and to add to their number if deemed expedient. At the first meeting, held appropriately on Patriots Day, 1894, Rev. Dr. Osgood was chosen Chairman and Dr. Oliver H. Howe, Secretary. By vote of the Committee, Ira B. Pratt and George W. Collier were added to their number, making eight in all. The early meetings were spent in examining various old maps and records and in rehearsing many traditions of early times. Of plans for the writing of a history, we had none; but as the next best thing, we set ourselves to the task of collecting materials which could be used later by whoever should write the history. We recorded every tradition or reminiscence that seemed to be of value and secured documents and maps. We also started a collection of historical relics, which, by the courtesy of the Trustees of the Public Library, we were allowed to place in their reading-room. This collection has grown in variety and interest and we hope it will be permanently kept, both as an instructive exhibit of implements of former times and as a repository for family relics that might otherwise become forgotten or lost. The town has provided the Committee with a room in the new fireproof vault where any documents that are precious for family association may be deposited for safe-keeping.The Committee repeatedly considered the matter of finding some one who would undertake the task of constructing a narrative of the town from the materials obtainable. There seemed to be nobody in the town willing to undertake so serious a work, and the Committee thought it unwise to employ an outsider for the purpose.At length, in September, 1896, much to our satisfaction, Rev. Mr. Bigelow volunteered to write the history, which is herewith submitted.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
